u w u u (I u u W II « u II II « MORGAN | " Smitty " shows the boys from A. and M. how it ' s done — in preparation for his duties there next Fall on the coaching staff. T. C. U. Although decisively outplaying their Texas opponents, the Gents were unable to put forth the extra punch for a score when, for the third consec- utive time in three weeks, they played to a scoreless deadlock against the T. C. U. Frogs in the Fair Grounds stadium. Again, as in the Texas U. game, the Gents had a touchdown play called back, due to a penalty. Os- 1 i n, in the first quarter, got loose off-tackle and raced sixty-five yards to cross the Frog goal line and score the only touchdown of the game, which was ruled no-good due to holding. All throughout the game, the Gents demonstrated a superior brand of football, most of the game being played in the Frogs ' territory. Smith, Centenary ' s great field-general, dominated the Gents ' offensive, exhibiting a versatility of skill rarely found in one man. The scoreless tie again presenting itself in the Gents ' camp was reason enough for the appropriate dedication, " You ' re getiin ' to be a habit with me. " TEXAS A. M. Displaying a brilliant and much improved offensive as well as a stub- born defense, the Gents ran up the astounding score of 20-0 over the Texas Farmer. Oslin again proved to be the individual star as he raced 74 yards through the entire A. M. team, at one time and forty yards another to score touchdowns. Geisler scored the other touchdown, being on the receiving end of an almost impossible pass from Smith. It was just an- other case of too much of " The Three Musketeers, " Oslin, Smith and Geisler. The Aggies offered a scoring threat several times, but were soon stopped by the strong Gent defense. UNION With the first string eleven being retired to the se- curity of the bench after the first quarter, the Cen- tenary reserves romped to an easy 47-0 victory over Union University Bulldogs from Jackson, Tennessee. The game was featured by a brilliant 77-yard jaunt by Orville Justus, a speedy reserve half, coming into the game for Oslin. Glumac and Sellers also showed up well, bearing the brunt of the Centenary offense during the latter part of the game. At no time were the Gents in serious danger, presenting a stubborn forward wall defense and a smoothly clicking offense. SELLERS 82 WILLIAMS

Running, side-stepping, twisting, sprinting — Oslin. M SEASON FOR 1933 L S. U. Playing on foreign soil for the first time during the season, the Centenary Gents, supposedly the " under-dog, " reached the highest pinnacle of excellence in every phase of football, when they played the ferocious " Tiger " of Louisiana State University to a scoreless draw at the mammoth L. S. U. stadium under the arc-lights. Both teams threatened to score at intervals throughout the game, but neither was able to put across the final drive. The battle consisted largely of a punting duel between Smith and Michael, with neither showing a decided advantage. Probably the greatest individual defense ever before seen on a gridiron was displayed by Oslin. Time and again, the Gents ' diminutive speed demon was the only obstacle between the hard-charging Tiger backs and the Gents ' goal-line, yet not once did " Shorty " fail to come through successfully, giving a marvelous exhibition of defensive skill to approximately 20,000 tense and excited fans. TEXAS U. Immediately following their history-making epic against L. S. U., the Gents journeyed to the land of the Longhorns, where they played the strong Texas University eleven to another scoreless draw on the Texas field in San Antonio. The game was featured by what was perhaps the greatest goal- line stand in football. In the last few seconds left to play, the Gents, by virtue of an off-side penalty, were pushed back to the one yard stripe, first down, goal to go. Even as the final gun sounded, the crowd was gasping in the stands as a defensively superb " Gentleman " held off an en- raged " Longhorn " a mere six inches from victory. During the first half, the heart-breaking experi- ence of having a touchdown called back due to an off-side presented itself, to throw a cog in an erst- while smooth-working football machine. On an off-tackle play, Smith went over but was called back and the Gents were penalized for off-sides. The following attempt failed to score and the Gents lost what might be called their " golden opportunity. " AMES 81

BAKER S. M. U. Marching on toward another undefeated season, the Gents again came through with a 7-0 victory over the S. M. U. Mus- tangs. Most of the game the teams seemed fairly well matched, but the superiority of Smith, Oslin, and Geisler constantly stood out. Oslin ' s nineteen-yard sprint was the only tally of the game. S. M. U. presented a strong aeria l attack, as expected, with Fuqua, local boy, on the receiv- ing end of most passes. The defensive work of Stacks and Weidman in breaking up passes was outstanding. Wilson, S. M. U. back, raced seventy yards for a touchdown early in the game, but was called back due to a penalty, which relieved the Gents followers very much. A special feature of the game was the constant battle between two great ends, Fuqua and Geisler. MISSISSIPPI A beautifully executed forward pass, well over the head of a defen- sive Centenary half, spelled doom to the truly great record of an un- crossed goal line in thirteen pigskin contests, when the Gents defeated the " Mudcats " of Mississippi by the slim margin of 7-6, played on alien territory in Jackson, Mississippi. Ole Miss ' s score came in the beginning of the second quarter, a six- point lead that assumed mountainous proportions as the whistle blew for the half. Coming back in the second period, a different and inspired Centenary " Gentlemen " met the spinning intricacies of the Ole Miss War- ner system. Displaying an extra drive and punch, the Gents launched a determined drive for the Mississippi goal line. With Smith, Oslin and Geisler, the mainstays of the Centenary offense, the Gents brought the ball from the 50-yard line to the Ole Miss 8-yard line. From here, an exchange behind the line, from Smith to Oslin, provided the necessary punch for a touchdown. From the accurate toe of Manning Smith came the extra point that won the ball game, 7-6.
